The 2021-2022 season has not yet started but on the side of Paris Saint-Germain, there is already movement behind the scenes. While the Kylian Mbappé case, which has not yet been extended, is still not resolved, the Parisian leaders are doing a good job on the transfer window. To launch this summer transfer market, the sporting director Leonardo and his teams got their hands on Georginio Wijnaldum, by capping FC Barcelona on the post. And now, it is another much desired player who is about to land in the French capital.
For many weeks, the Parisians have been negotiating with Inter for the transfer of Achraf Hakimi. Arrived at the Nerazzurri only a year ago, the Moroccan right-back has amply participated in the coronation of the Milanese club in Serie A, with 7 goals and 10 assists in 37 league matches. Something to attract attention, especially those of PSG. And while the discussions have intensified in recent days, the vice-champions of France 2021 have clearly reached their goal in recent hours.
